A Moment To Re-Experience The Amazing Intro To Full Throttle

A Moment To Re-Experience The Amazing Intro To Full Throttle

Has it been a while since you last played Full Throttle? I’m guessing it has. Sit back, relax and watch the intro movie from the game.

I remember the gravel-voiced intro, the long shots of the road… but more than anything I remember that song that kicks in when Ben ramps his bike over that Limo, played by the Gone Jackals. This has got to be one of the best adventure game introductions of all time… no? I welcome your suggestions for better introductions in the comments.

“When I think of Maureen, I think of two things. Asphalt. And trouble.”


  • One of the best adventure games of all time. Adrien Ripburger is an underrated Mark Hamill villain.

  • Why do we not get ‘HD Remakes’ of games like this, as opposed to lesser games that only came out last console generation? Personally, I would love to see a modern remake of Road Rash, in the spirit of the Megadrive/3DO versions.

    • +1, road rash was the shiz. I like how the bikes didn’t have attribute scores, just better or worse descriptions of the trait, like “handling: orgasmic” or “acceleration: awful” 😛

    • There are some pretty good remakes available on iOS, Another World and Flashback being two notables. Still, I’d give a testicle for an HD version of this.

    • Yes fully agree on every point would love to see a Full Throttle HD remake with directors extended cut.

      There was a concept video of Road Rash that looked fantastic, I would prefer if they released Need For Speed every second year and Road Rash in between.

    • Monkey Island was 2 years ago. Monkey Island 2 was the year after that. Full Throttle and Day of the Tentacle are coming, you can trust me on that.

      Full Throttle is decent, but damn is it short. The combat is also terrible and there’s a driving minigame near the end that’s almost broken. Kinda impressive that it still holds up incredibly well despite those flaws.

      • Both the combat and driving game s were more puzzles than fully-recognised games.
        Took me ages to work out what I was supposed to be doing in the demo derby.
        I did work out how to get the chainsaw first off, that made things easier, but I don’t think I ever managed to clip the cavefish without the cheat code.

      • We can trust you on that? Really?

        I don’t think we’re going to get them. There’s been a change in leadership at Lucas since the MI SE’s were released. TellTale have already said that Lucas isn’t really interested in working on another Monkey Island series.

        The current president is also on record saying “Our priority is to create authentic, immersive, high quality Star Wars games”.

  • Full Throttle’s soundtrack was awesome. Bone to Pick remains one of my favorite Amazon purchases.

  • Still quote it from time to time

    “Ssh Ben! You’ll ruin the ending!”

    “Ha! I think you hit a seagull!”
